"Terrapin Flyer with Grateful Dead Alumni Tom Constanten and Bob Bralove. A performance of Dose Hermanos starts the set and then 2 sets of Grateful Dead music. Show also features Wavy Dave and JP Nowak from Cornmeal!"

-- Sept 18

So my old NJ pal John Zias just told me two days ago that he's filling in for one of the guitarists for these gigs. John has played with TC before. My rally point is Hodi's Half Note, on Sept 18. (will bring my used iPhone for taping - but, no phone carrier contract included)

Zias-later, bye...

Review of Terrapin Flyer with Tom Constanten at Diamond Pub in Louisville on Aug 9, 2012

Tom Constanten played keyboards with the Grateful Dead during their peak of intensity, 1968-70. He was the special guest of Terrapin Flyer, on August 9 – the anniversary of Jerry Garcia's untimely death in 1995 – at Diamond Pub Concert Hall, the site of the old Jillian's. The band also included guitarist John Zias, who clearly was inspired by, but not a clone of Garcia. Apparently Constanten has had some health issues, but when the group finally began a little after 11, he seemed right at home. The 80-minute first set included the relatively rare "Mountains of the Moon," a delicate piece, which transformed into a roiling jam which, in turn, led to the treat of an exploratory "Dark Star," the Dead's magnum opus. The band played with feeling and a spirit which evoked the good old days. As it was a work night, I left before the second set, but was glad to catch this band on a good night.

Tom Constanten performs Dark Star

Love the dark star scales extending from TC's left hand, it's as if there were two pianists performing! The phil lesh influence is obvious.
